Kerry's apron

This week I am sewing madly to update my Etsy shop, and to get ready for (hopefully!) 2 craft shows next month.  The first takes place on Saturday August 8th at the drive-in on hwy 99 in Newburg, called Craft-In.  I am also hoping to get a booth at Portland’s own Crafty Wonderland on Sunday August 9th.  One craftacular weekend!

I am loving putting together these aprons, made with both vintage fabric (lots of cute pillowcases!) and lovely new fabrics, such as Amy Butler and the like.  Tiny bits of old lace, hankies, embroideries, rick rack, and other fun finds make each one unique and fun for me to make!

I am calling them my “gussy up” aprons.

In knitting news, I am rapidly stitching my way through Ishbel.  I am in love with this pattern right now, pretty and easy.  Pretty easy is a requirement for this broad these days, as my oldest is home for the summer, and my lovely babe is just 7 weeks old… not the time to cast on an Estonian lace shawl if you know what I mean... and you do, dontcha?

How could I forget the new duvet and pillowcases I made for the ol’ boudoir?
Egads my dears…that’s not the half of it!  My Etsy site, Farmgirl Drygoods is finally up and running  and I am scheduled to get a lot of sewing done to stock the store as well as adding a lot of really wonderful antique finds.
